What we're looking for
RSPB Sandwell Valley is an enchanting urban green space located in the middle of a vibrant and diverse community. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to engage with the young people (11 to 18 years old) who visit the reserve or live nearby. Our youth engagement volunteers will deliver outdoor activities for the local youth club, and in summer evenings, for young people visiting the reserve. This may include bushcraft, orienteering, pond dipping, scavenger hunts, practical conservation / gardening We want to make young people feel welcome on the nature reserve, and encourage them to use the site responsibly, so they can enjoy the beautiful surroundings and connect with nature. This has been shown to have a positive effect on both physical and mental health, and young people's self-confidence.
